SUNSET PARK — CONSTRUCTION STARTED TODAY on what will be the nation’s largest dedicated offshore wind port at the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal in Sunset Park, Gov. Kathy Hochul, Mayor Eric Adams, and Equinor Wind U.S. President Molly Morris announced on Monday. The officials said the project will advance progress toward the state’s goal to develop 9,000 megawatts of offshore wind by 2035 and create more than 1,000 construction jobs. The Terminal will fuel the redevelopment of the Brooklyn waterfront, “bringing important investments to our communities, creating good-paying jobs, and building the model for the offshore wind industry that the rest of the nation can follow,” Hochul said in a release.

Adams said the project would “significantly reduce our carbon footprint and ensure our city meets our climate goals of 100-percent clean electricity by 2040 and carbon neutrality by 2050.  Together with our recent acquisition of the Brooklyn Marine Terminal in nearby Red Hook, we are well on our way to reimagining Brooklyn’s working waterfront for the 21st century.”
